Growth Groups At CrossRoads
CrossRoads is all about learning and living the Bible. We desire to see Christians growing in their relationship with Christ, thereby becoming mature, fruit-bearing followers of Jesus Christ. Many times Bible Study classes are very academic in nature, attempting to teach people the "dos" and "don'ts" of the Christian life. This is not the goal of our Bible Growth Groups. Our focus is to teach people how to develop a closer relationship with Christ. We desire for people to clearly see their identity in Christ, as well as their absolute completeness in Him.
Listed below is a brief synopsis of each lesson.
Salvation - A New Beginning
This lesson explains what biblical salvation is, and what eventually follows true salvation. It teaches the Christian that the essence of the Christian life is Christ in you, living His life through you. The Christian life is not about rules, but a relationship with a person - Jesus Christ.
Eternal Security - Forever Accepted and Loved
This lesson explains why believers can never lose their relationship with Christ. We stand absolutely secure in the Father's love.
The Church and the Christian
What composes a local church? Why is it important for a believer to be part of a local church? What is the primary function of the local church? What should be the Christian's response to his church? All of these questions are answered in this lesson.
What is prayer? Why should the Christian pray? When should the Christian pray? What should the Christian pray for? How do we pray? This lesson will enlighten the believer concerning all of these questions.
The Holy Spirit and His Role in Your Life
This lesson explains four things the Holy Spirit does instantly, the moment a person believes on Christ. It also explains the work of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life after salvation. What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit? It is absolutely crucial that every Christian can answer this question.
Leading Others to Jesus
One of the greatest thrills and privileges for the Christian is to lead others to a relationship with Jesus. Unfortunately, most believers do not feel comfortable sharing their faith with others. This lesson is both instructive and practical in teaching believers how to share their faith with others.
The Word of God
This lesson gives an overview of God's Word and explains why God's Word is a vital part of the believer's walk with Christ. It also teaches the believer how to study God's Word and gives some practical tools that can be used to study the Bible.
The Christian has been called to be a light in a sin-darkened world, but biblical separation is not a list of rules. It flows from a close relationship with Jesus Christ. This lesson explains the new nature we receive in Christ at salvation and the two laws that dwell in every Christian. How does the Christian experience victory over sin? It is not through religious rules, formulas, or programs. This lesson teaches where victory is found.
